A simple addition of hearty grains makes this the ultimate recipe for soft and chewy Blended Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies.
The most classic of cookies is getting a technique upgrade, and the result is the best-ever Blended Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies that have chewy, gooey centers that taper off into crispy, crunchy edges.
Just look at that sky-high stack!
These aren’t your average oatmeal-loaded CCC’s. Rather than stir the oats into the cookie dough, they’re first blended into a food processor to make a coarse oat flour.
The blended oatmeal alters the consistency of the cookies by making them softer, while at the same time eliminating big chunks of oats to make for more even baking.
The rest of the recipe is just a tried-and-true classic that involves folding in your chocolate chips or chunks of choice and then scooping the dough onto a baking sheet.
Unlike my go-to recipe for Secret Ingredient Chocolate Chip Cookies, this recipe doesn’t require refrigerating the dough prior to scooping and baking the cookies. But you still get magical results!
